Time Out says

Before Groucho Marx became the cigar-puffing, bushy-browed, mustachioed wisecracker of cherished Hollywood farces like Monkey Business, Duck Soup and A Night at the Opera, he was a kid singer with a (reportedly) mediocre voice. Learn more about his rise to goofball glory alongside his four funny bros in this lecture chronicling the comedy team’s path from cherubic child charmers on the vaudeville stage to purveyors of the hammy free-for-all we know and love. American Vaudeville Theater director, writer and host Trav S.D. leads the chat, while old-timey-jazz singer Sarah Moskowitz croons tunes from the brothers’ early rep, including Groucho’s favorite: the immortal “Peasie Weasie."
